I would have never thought that my description of cuteness would include the words "fat and furry".
Oh my god.
Somebody please tell me what kind of animal this is. Because I need to have it. And feed it. I have a suspicion that this particular breed stores all of it's fat reserves in it's cheeks, and that is endlessly fascinating for me.
Particularly since we have a dog that hoards calories in it's ass. Please, someone who knows me and my dog--vouch for this fact in the comments section. I'm thinking the bizarre fat reserves of animals *might* be an obsession of mine.
Mike believes this creature to be a mouse. I'm skeptical, as I don't recall mice having the fullness of face/squatty little body of this critter. Also, how in the hell would this thing be able to fit its head through those cute little mouse doors you see in cartoons? I don't buy it.
Look again, go ahead. It's a face with feet! I mean, if it could just fatten it's ears up a tad, it would be circular, and that is odd!
But then again, I suppose that I do like oddities of the animal persuasion.
FYI, this picture comes from this AMAZING site--click here for the link. This furry creature that I will affectionately refer to as "fat head" gets my vote. Be warned, however--these pictures will make you want to place baby animals in compromising positions that include a variety of dishes and cups.
